I am running my Hive Witness for quite a while and sooner or later it was clear that something will happen :) I just got informed by witness colleague @bluerobo that my witness was starting to miss blocks, which is obviously not the intended way that a witness should operate, so I took a look and obviously, the Hard Drive was completely and fully loaded with 100% and the blockchain could not be kept synchronized ...
bad bad thing this
Ok, that was for sure an issue that needed immediate solving. I anyways wanted to move away from Contabo as a Provider and took the opportunity to transfer this to a server of mine I have here locally in my basement and not somewhere with an internet provider.
It only has a Ryzen 5 1600 Processor but that should be more than enough to run, I invested in 16GB of Ram additionally so that it now holds 32GB, which also should be adequate.
Well, for sure syncing the chain took quite a while but I am happy to say that my new witness server already produced the first block today!
Additionally, I also set up the pricefeed again and it seems to be working like a charm.
That is looking better again
So, it is like most of the time, a crisis always brings along the possibility to do better and change something..
If you want to leave a vote I would be happy you can either vote here or in any of the tools that are already in place to vote for Hive Witnesses.
ps oh I used the chance as well to update to 1.27.4 ;)
